NBA games are usually full of chatter on the court. But some of the things the Sacramento Kings said to Joe Ingles made Donovan Mitchell take notice.
Ingles can talk trash with the best of them, and it gets him going, but Mitchell turned his indignation into aggression for the Utah Jazz.
"Somebody said something to Joe, and I'm gonna be honest, Joe gave an answer that I hadn't heard in a while," Mitchell said without revealing details. "It just fired me up, and when Joe gets angry, I get angry. ... That's really what turned the tide.''
Mitchell scored 14 of his season-high 42 points in the fourth quarter, and the Jazz beat the Kings 128-112 on Saturday night, extending their franchise-record home winning streak to 24 games.
